This novel succeeds in being outstanding at so many levels that it could receive a multiple of five stars. It is hard to imagine a management book in novel form ever approaching this one in usefulness. Most people will learn more that they can apply from this book about management than many people learn to apply from an M.B.A.

The basic story is built around the dilemmas facing Alex Rogo, a newly-appointed plant manager. The plant can't seem to ship, it's losing money, and bad things can happen to good people if all this doesn't change soon. Alex is at a loss for what to do until he pulls out a cigar that Jonah, a physicist from Israel, had recently given him. That cigar reminds him to contact Jonah for possible help. From there, the path to recovery begins.

Let me describe some of the many levels on which this novel is valuable.

First, the book explains how to see businesses as systems as well as any other book on this subject. It compares favorably in this area to such important works as The Fifth Discipline and the Fifth Discipline Handbook. The metaphor of how to speed up a slow-moving group of boy scouts will be visceral to anyone who has done any hiking with a group.

Second, the book helps you learn how to improve the performance of a system by providing you with a replicable process that you can apply to analyzing any human or engineering system. The primary metaphor is improving a manufacturing process, but the same principles apply more broadly to other circumstances.

Third, you will experience the power of the Socratic method as a way to stimulate your mind to learn, and to use Socratic questions to stimulate the minds of others to become better thinkers and doers.

Fourth, the authors also use problem simulation as a practical way to help you experience the learning process they are advocating.

Fifth, the book is unusually good in bringing home the consequences of letting your business process run in a vicious cycle: Your family life may also.

The pacing of the book is especially good. You are given time to stew with issues and come up with your own ideas before sample answers are provided by Alex and his staff in the novel.

Unlike many books that take complicated ideas and oversimplify them so the ideas lose their meaning, this book simplifies ideas in ways that enhance their meaning by making the ideas easier to see and employ.

If you do not understand all of the ins and outs of typical factory accounting, you may get a little lost from time to time. But that's not a problem. That accounting just distorts common perceptions of what needs to be done. You can safely skip anything you don't understand if you don't have to deal with such issues.

While I did not observe any overt errors in the book, companies that do not put an asset charge on operational assets could make the mistake from this book of seeking too little profit. You need to earn on-going returns that exceed your cost of capital, too.

You will get the most from this book if you read The Fifth Discipline following it (if you have not read that book already). The discussion of the beer game simulation in The Fifth Discipline will add to your understanding of system dynamics.

Following that book, I suggest that you then read The Balanced Scorecard and The Strategy-Focused Organization for ideas about how to use goals, measurements, and rewards to concentrate attention onto the highest leverage areas for your system.

After you have finished employing what you have learned and helping others around you to learn more also, I suggest that you think about how to optimize the full upside potential more rapidly through the use of irresistible forces and 2,000 percent solutions to speed your progress. That should leave you with even more success and more time to enjoy it.

Unblock the constraints on your progress!

Zu Eli Goldratt und seine Bücher um Theorie of Caonstraints muss man eigentlich nicht viel sagen außer einfach genial! :)
Ein Professor aus meinem MBA-Studium hat uns dieses Buch ans Herz gelegt und ich muss sagen, ich bin begeistert. Ich als Informatiker und somit Fachfremder habe mich oft gefragt wieso das ein oder andere so unnötig kompliziert bzw bürokratisch gemacht wird statt einfach gesunden Menschenverstand walten zu lassen. Durch die Methoden von Eli Goldratt habe erhalte ich endlich eine Methode um dies in Worte zu fassen und habe sehr viele neue Einsichten gewinnen können! Für jeden, der einen MBA macht oder gemacht hat, gehört dieses Buch zur Pflichtlektüre meiner Meinung nach... :)

... ist dieser Roman;

Wer in der Lage ist die einfachen Grundprinzipien in seiner eigenen Fertigung umzusetzen gewinnt mehrfach - beim Kunden und finanziell.

Aber: das Buch gibt keine konkreten Hinweise wie die Grundprinzipien in die tägliche Arbeit umgesetzt werden; da ist viel Eigeninitiative (oder externe Hilfe) notwendig; insbesondere weil es gegen viele überlieferte Mythen in der Produktion spricht und noch dazu die klassische Kostenrechnung bei der Einführung Amok spielt ....

Für mich ist es trotzdem eines der besten Bücher wie man einen Produktionsbetrieb wirklich erfolgreich machen kann; alt aber immer noch frisch, unkonventionell und leicht zu lesen...

Having thought about the fundamental basics of good process management for a while now, this novel was very helpful in capturing the essence again. The entertaining approach is helpful for digesting a relatively dry topic and stimulating the thinking process. And although the original book was written decades ago, these fundamentals are still relevant today. I would recommend this book for anybody who strives to understand the basics of process management and is happy to get them wrapped up in some easy essay format.

At first I didn't like it very much and till the end the book has many flaws. But we don't read a book for it's lack of flaws, right? We read it for what it gives us to improve our lives. And this book gave me a lot: a Managment method, a few specific applications, how to argue my point of view better, and another perspective on science that even some good scientists may find interesting.

Therefore in my eyes it is an easy suggestion for pretty much everybody to read!

that can be applied to different business aspects but also to everyday life. It is amazing that a simple five step process can be widely adopted, in a variety of scenarios, domains and situations for so many years. I also do beliebe that parts of the more recent approaches for continous improvement such as agile setups in software companies found a solid inspiration ground in The Theory of Constraints.

What is the GOAL of a company? To make $$$$$. it is simple
How do we do it? Every action that moves the whole company towards that goal is the answer NOT a part or a function in that company.
It is a living organism and we should keep the organism healthy not a part of the organism in a continuous fashion.

Mentioned in the book The Phoenix Project I wanted to read this book because it was the first to combine a story and knowledge. The same management principles are explained for manufactoring as those explained in The Phoenix Project for IT.

It is all about the flow. Keeping the inventory low, the flow high and concentrating on the bottlenecks. All improvements aside the bottlenecks are useless. Not every working center needs to be busy all the time.

I enjoyed reading the story of the plant manager implementing these changes in his company. Goldratt is as a good story teller as a management counsultant.
